Idyllic in nature, the poem tells the charming story of the love of a goatherd and a shepherdess.

Longus

 

Years of birth and death unknown. Greek writer of the second and third centuries A.D.

Longus was the author of a pastoral romance called Daphnis and Chloe, in which the heroes and the surrounding humble world of rustics and slaves were idealized. The work’s stylistic uniqueness lay in its juxtaposition of the naive feelings of the lovers with sophisticated descriptions of love and nature. Written in rhythmic prose, it served as a model for pastoral novels during the late Renaissance and the Enlightenment.
